Welcoming cabin

  • 5 of 5

This is our second stay at the Gingerbread House and it feels like home! The house has everything you need to be comfortable. We enjoyed relaxing by the fire after a cold day's adventure. Thank you Patti for the use of your wonderful home and all the amenities that come with it!

The cabin was beautiful, homey, and clean.

  • 5 of 5

There were ample towels and paper products and everything else you could need. There were only two bedrooms but lots of room for sleeping with the upstairs loft. There is a newly redone almost its own apartment downstairs if you wanted to bring a blowup mattress. The bathroom down there is gorgeous. The only thing I can say in the least negative is that it's a little difficult to maneuver the Three point turn if you have a large vehicle. I would suggest using the upper driveway if you do that.

Gingerbread was a hit!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and 2 kids loved our long weekend get away to the mountains and the Gingerbread House. This was my Children's first trip ever the mountains. We were super busy/on the go being tourists but wish we could have spent more time chilling at the cabin. It was sooo peaceful, quiet and comfortable. The kids make themselves right at home. The remodeled basement was a hit with my 11 year old and my 9 year old loved the bunk room. Hubby and I could have lived on the deck on the rocking chairs. Scenery in Fleetwood and neighboring area of Todd was gorgeous...very quaint...loved all the Christmas tree farms. Hope we can come back. Definitely recommend a 4WD..roads and driveway are very steep...we just had a minivan:)

About Patti Weaver

I am the original owner of the Gingerbread House. My family and I bought the lot and built the home in 1996 as a vacation home. We live in Florida, but love to escape to the cabin for all of the beautiful seasons the mountains offer. It is quite simply "my happy place", and I'm delighted to share it with others!

Patti Weaver purchased this cabin in 1996

Why Patti Weaver chose Fleetwood

I chose the area of Fleetwood Falls to build a cabin because it is not a high tourist traffic area. Rather, it's charm is all the nature that abounds for hiking, biking, fishing, tubing, or just plain relaxing. It is also very near Boone and Blowing Rock and West Jefferson, 3 unique towns that have much to offer.

What makes this cabin unique

We are so excited to announce we have just completed renovating part of the basement to include a great additional living area and full bathroom! The Gingerbread House has been built with love and care, and many happy memories have been made there from honeymoons, family times, Girl's shopping trips, Bachelor getaways, ski and golf trips, the list goes on and on. The unique location is close enough to larger towns, but far enough away to feel a sense of peace and relaxation. I love there are so many fun things to do and see, but I can also enjoy the splendor of quiet nature if I choose to do so.
